    You can not set a parameter prompt value in code. The whole
    idea of using a parameter prompt is to ask the user for a
    value.

    Try using a text box on the form as the parameter. Instead
    of the query using a criteria of [Year], it would be
    something like:
    Forms!theform.thetextbox

    This way you can set the text box's value and then requery
    the subform:
    Me.thetextbox = 2004
    Me.subformcontrol.Form.Requery

    BUT, this is normally not the best way to restrict the
    records in a subform. The Link Master/Child Fileds property
    are the usual way to syncronize a subform with a value on
    the main form.
